The Western women's golf team recently captured the Ontario
University Athletics Championships held in Guelph at the Victoria
Park Golf Club.
In only its second year of competition, the women's event
more than doubled its competition from last year with 17 golfers
representing seven schools.
Lindsey Edmunds led after the first day of competition, shooting
a 75. She followed that up with a round of 80 to finish second
overall. She was followed closely by Lisa Volchoff, who shot
76 and 82, and Carlie Weppler, who shot 84 both days to finish
in fourth. Michelle Dunkel rounded out Western's scoring with
rounds of 88 and 83.
Western's two-day combined total of 322 led them to an easy
16 stroke victory over Guelph. Windsor and Toronto were the
only other schools with teams, while Waterloo, Laurier and
McMaster had competitors but not full teams.
The Mustangs' men's golf team also competed in the OUA championships,
but were not as successful as the women.
Greg Kennette finished tops among Western golfers with rounds
of 76 and 77, good enough for 22nd place.
The teams two-day combined score of 619 put them in seventh
place out of the 10 teams competing.
Joe Lindsay shot scores of 81 and 76, Mike deCourcy shot 79
each day, while Pat Lindsay (79,80) and Josh Ryan (85,74) each
had two day totals of 159 to round out Western's scoring.
